Punta Uva villa description

Villa Toucan is a private ocean view villa on the edge of the primary rain forest where you will enjoy the surrounding intense wildlife in the comforts of tropical accommodations built with American quality. The house sits on top of a hill overlooking the rain forest canopy and the Caribbean Sea. The nearby virgin beaches of Punta Uva, Playa Chiquita and Manzanillo are known to be some of the prettiest in the world.

Designed as a vacation house for families and honeymoons, the villa comes fully equipped and can comfortably sleep up to four people. There are two bedrooms, each with its own private balcony, outdoor bathroom and private garden, a full kitchen, dining area, our new hammock hut, barbeque and a wildlife observation terrace. Guests rent the entire house - whether you are one or four people.

The villa is located on our private 9 acre property within the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge where some of the most exuberant wildlife and foliage can be found in Costa Rica. Within the refuge itself, there are plenty of activities to occupy your time while here including nature hikes, dolphin tours, boat tours of the Gandoca lagoon and Punta Mona, explore the many coral coves south of Manzanillo and much more. Outside the refuge, you will also have the opportunity to zip line on one of the better canopy tours of the country, enjoy a full day of rafting on the Pacuare river, enjoy the many and diverse beaches along the coast or just plain relax. Consider booking a private massage right on your terrace overlooking the jungle!

Right from the villa itself, guests can venture onto our our new trail on the property through Maya's Magic Forest - a 20 minute journey through a true virgin rain forest filled with magical trees and wildlife. This trail takes you through a genuine virgin forest - filled with massive trees, jungle vines, a variety of palms, bromeliads and orchids, poison dart frogs, the Golden Orb spider and always a few more surprises. Consider walking the trail at night for even more surprises that can't be seen in the day time.

Consider staying with us at Villa Toucan for a vacation of a lifetime. The property is owned by French-Americans Manuel and Emmanuelle with our 2 daughters Maya Soleil and Sara Star. We live on the property and are always here to help make your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible.

If you would like to speak with one of us or have questions, please always feel free to call us at (506) 8879 9191. We look forward to seeing you soon! PURA VIDA!!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2002

          About the owner: We came to Costa Rica in 2002 to realize a lifelong dream and today it is a pleasure and honor to be able to share it with you! We live on the property with our 2 daughters Maya-Soleil and Sara-Star, a short distance from Villa Toucan, but far enough to offer you complete privacy. We enjoy helping our guests with questions, tour bookings, activities, visits on the trails throughout the property and share our experiences about life in the jungle and Costa Rica! We also own and manage a local real estate and property management company.

          Why the Owner Chose Punta Uva:
          Punta Uva is a living paradise on earth, with a vibrant and lush rain forest that reaches the gorgeous beaches below with white sands and live corals reefs.

          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
          Villa Toucan is slightly off the beaten path...and enjoys some of the most intense nature in Costa Rica with privacy, tranquility and security. Other than the caretaker / owners on site, there are no neighbors! It is the best of both worlds: close to the beaches but a complete immersion in the treasures and wildlife of the tropical primary rain forest!
